Join Our Board.
The Chaco Credit Union Board of Directors is elected by membership to advocate on its behalf and set the strategic direction of the credit union. As a Board member, you’ll work with a group of dedicated individuals to review financials, approve policy and set the vision for the future of the credit union.
Opportunity to Serve.
Serving on the Board is a unique opportunity to get involved and share your expertise in guiding the credit union. The responsibility of the Board is broad - requiring responsible and thoughtful commitment to overseeing safety and soundness, risk management, performance and strategic direction of the credit union. A diverse and skilled Board that represents the diversity of Chaco membership is important.
The Board serves on a volunteer basis and is elected by Chaco membership annually. All Board members serve a three-year term and are encouraged to attend monthly meetings with the President/CEO and credit union management. Board members may be asked to dedicate 8 to 12 hours a month to credit union business and training on various credit union topics. Training is offered to all Board members, individually and/or as a group.
How to Join the Board.
The election for the Board of Directors is held every year. To apply for a position on the Board, you must meet Chaco membership and eligibility requirements. A nominating committee will review all submitted applications, determine final eligibility and schedule interviews with all candidates. Approved candidates will then be listed on a ballot and voted on by Chaco members. Results of the election are announced at the Annual Meeting.
To be considered for the 2016 election, submit an application by November 15, 2015.
